Kenya National Union Of Teachers now want the new curriculum roll out suspended and they want the Ministry Of Education together with Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD)

According to KNUT Secretary General Wilson Sossion, a two-month research on teacher preparedness has revealed that there exists a huge gap in implementing the competency-based curriculum.

According to him, the government’s push to implement the new curriculum as a disaster in waiting.

KNUT says the study involving 1,455 teachers and 304 head teachers from 405 schools distributed in 37 counties further indicates a major deficit of CBC teacher.

The study indicates that out of the 405 schools sampled, 304 schools representing a 75.4percent lacked at least one CBC trained teacher in one of the grades.
